However, life has different plans in store for Strange as he finds out that he's not going to return to his career as a surgeon.

Trivia

Although this will be his first outing in a solo movie, not couting posible cameos in other phase 3 films, Doctor Strange has been teased in earlier movies: In Thor (2011) The Eye of Agamotto can be seen among the treasures in Odin's treasure chamber. The Eye is an magical artifact that grants it's owner a host of mystical powers such as protection against demons and dark magic, and the ability to see through cloaking spells and wards. In the comics The Eye is given to Doctor Strange when he becomes the sorceror supreme. In Thor: The Dark World (2013) The Crossroads is among the various phrases written on Selvig's chalkboard. The Crossroads is an otherdimensional reality that has a prominent role in the Doctor Strange comics. Perhaps most notably, during his interrogation by Cap, Falcon and Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) Jasper Sitwell mentions Stephen Strange as one of the high-risk targets that HYDRA keeps under surveillance. Stephen Strange is of course the real name of Doctor Strange. See more »
